Services MinistryCFO Provides for Church Start Ups

We Can Get You Up and Running Quickly and Cost Effectively

entering-startup-signThe team at MinistryCFO has years of experience incorporating churches throughout the country. We are experts in the necessary steps that a church plant must undergo and the pitfalls to avoid. As such, we provide a step-by-step methodical approach for getting our clients operational quickly and cost effectively. In the process, our clients avoid heavy legal bills and delays. We know the right questions to ask your preferred bank so that you get the right services you need at reasonable prices.

Please don’t miss our first bit of advice: SECURE YOUR PREFERRED INTERNET DOMAIN NAME FIRST, BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE! And then start your legal documentation!

Our start-up package includes any and all of the following:

1. Legal and Governance Set Up

The legal and governance steps start first with registering the URL name and then in following order: articles of incorporation, federal employment identification number and trade name, if necessary. Other set-up steps include drafting bylaws and corporate minutes.

2. Security Set Up

These steps include general & liability insurance considerations, documenting child protection policies and implementing offsite backup and electronic storage procedures.

3. Administrative Systems Set Up

This starts with opening a bank account and moving quickly to set up Internet banking, payroll processing, and online giving processing, then establishing reimbursement policies and a working chart of accounts.
